In our section: ‘Employee in the spotlight’ we like to show which people are behind our organization. Every day Archive-IT strives to support organizations in the transition from a paper to a digital working environment. In addition, software is being developed to guarantee safe, digital accessibility. But who does what? And what are the motivations of the Archive-IT team? Time for a look behind the scenes. In the previous ‘Employee in the spotlight’, Kim Dijkman was nominated by Jordy Schoolmeesters. We would like to introduce Kim to you!
Kim, how did you end up at Archive-IT?
“Two years ago I started working at Archive-IT through an employment agency. At the time, I was working in domestic help, but I was in need of something else. A friend of mine, who worked at the temporary employment agency in question, told me that a position in the Services department was open at Archive-IT. The position was in Reuver at the main location of Archive-IT, an additional advantage for me because I also live here.”
Can you tell us a bit about your position at Archive-IT?
“I started in the Services department, where I was mainly involved in cleaning up paper files, which were then digitized. In the meantime, I have grown further within Archive-IT and I take on the daily work at our department: Storage at pallet level. I take care of the registration of incoming archive documents. Then I make sure that the archive is archived in our premises. If a customer needs an archive document, the request comes to me. I will look for the relevant record and make sure that it is delivered digitally or physically within the request time. I handle the request completely by myself. I also have regular contact with customers, for example about a specific request or destruction. For the item Storage at pallet level I take responsibility for this. I like that variety very much!”
Nice to know: Kim always wanted to be a teacher at an elementary school in the junior classroom.
What does your average day look like?
“I have breakfast every day with my children (twins) of 6 years old. Then I take them to school and then I drive to Archive-IT. When I am at work I handle all the requests that have come in. There is a lot of time pressure, because it has to be processed within a certain time and it has to reach the client. In addition to carrying out my work at Storage at pallet level, I also regularly help out at Archive-IT’s other services. For example, at the Storage at file level. When my working day is over, I go home again. Here I eat with my family and then there are often activities such as soccer training or swimming on the program for the kids!”
